ABOVE | Hermann Berie x MySwitzerland

Having worked as a mountain guide for 30 years, Hermann has dedicated most of his life to the outdoors. He has led tours on top of Everest and some of the highest peaks all around the world. And yet he keeps coming back to the Valais Alps. These are the mountains that he feels most connected to, where he feels home: "I want to get outside and be in nature, feel the inspiration, the energy from the mountains. Then, I'm right back where I want to be.“

Director Biography - Florian Nick

As a filmmaker and director of photography, I love to explore human stories and their relationship with nature, always with a strong desire to capture beautiful and deeply moving imagery. My films are driven by my passion for the outdoors, adventure, travel and sports, which I seek to carry over to my audience. I enjoy the intimacy and flexibility of working in small crews on location, making the best of any situation even in uncontrolled environments. This approach allows me to not only play with the beauty of natural light but more importantly capture the true spirit of the story in a genuine style.
